to see how your government works directly, c-span is the only place to go. >> until a few months ago, charles haldeman of freddie mac. he began the job in 2096 months after the company was taken over by the federal government. mr. haldeman spoke about the housing market and financial regulations at the john f. kennedy school of government. this is just under an hour. >> i'm a member of the faculty here at the kennedy school at a romani school of business and government. it's a pleasure to welcome all of you to this year's lecture, which is funded by nasd, which is now in the, the private broker of the u.s. industry. the focus is on financial regulation and each year we have had a leading public official responsible in some ways for u.s. regulation. this year, our speaker is a tiny bit of a stretch, but not really much at all. ed haldeman was ceo of freddie mac from a 2009 to just a few months ago. while in that role, ed was not really a formal regulator. he was responsible for running a very large public financial institution. freddie mac and its sibling, fannie mae are what are call
-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. these food thing, i heard he called these governors and all of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doing this in all of the battleground states. >> he'll privatize anything for a buck. >> yeah. >> one way to get r
about the federal government's role in disasters. i agree with you. if mitt romney is elected, it would be a disaster. this man wants to have 50 states doing 50 different things. how can we have a country like that? >> bill: you can't. by the way, you would have some idiot governors right like there were idiot governors who refused to take stimulus money. >> like the one down in louisiana. >> bill: that's the guy i was talking about. bobby jindal. there are governors that refuse to take high-speed rail money right. >> caller: that's unbelievable because in europe, you don't have to fly everywhere. it would advance the country. i don't understand the retch can thinking. >> bill: i think sandy really proves that this republican thinking is not good for our country. it doesn't fit the needs of americans and it just shows how shallow and wrong mitt romney's whole philosophy is. just think about hurricane sandy. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." stages of a plan they hatched back probably at reagan's
, the government already announced that some 500 will have been withdrawn by the end of this year. next year to take further decisions which the government has not yet taken, and you have to ask the defense secretary, you know, when he thinks that's possible. >> we are talking a time line of slightly more than two years, so i think things can change. i recognize that. >> yeah. i think the prime minister said what they're looking for is a glide past the end of 2014. the government will take those decisions when it's ready. >> what events will clearly dictate political decisions, not asking you to comment on political decisions, but dictate what happens -- >> i can give you confidence the figures announced by the prime minister out by december, that will be delivered. we'll be done. >> thank you very much. my last question, chairman, is is there any -- anybody heard anything about possibility of nato or the united states in particular? withdrawing significant troops earlier than the end of 2014? >> i think the united states also will want to take some provisions next year, and in light of the
cut pennies left alone billions. >> host: you have a new book? >> government police. weird not talking about murder or rape or stealing but people who put the dirt on their own property some of these came out of the first george bush rethink you should not put people in jail. and the old days there was a difference between criminal law and tort law it was called intent if you accelerated somebody that was not murder now there is a man in jail southern mississippi 10 years without parole for putting clean fill dirt on his land sometimes it is moving dirt from an area to another. some was well intended the clean water act says you cannot dump pollutants per kriet agree. no chemical company should be allowed the nine your own land is not the same as dumping chemicals. >> host: and utilities and the senate? >> i brought the peg family from idaho ss of new $5,000 per day fine and told they cannot build on their land no water touches there they and it there's no rainwater new government said it is a wetland. looked at the website. it is not there. they say the website is not perfect. another
strengthens, policies tightened, governance revisited, and institutions made safer, and our work continues. that brings us to today, on the brink of the one year anniversary, civil lawsuits, perjury trials, and we can expect more fallout to come. over the last year, we have learned much about ourselves, our many cultures, our values, and our vision. we're still working through some difficult issues, but the question remains where do we go from here? the answer can be found by returning to penn state's core mission -- teaching, research, and service. our bottom line is delivering an outstanding education to students. our students are our top priority. i repeat, our students are our top priority, and they are doing great things. for example, this year, our journalism students captured the national championship in the william randolff hurst journalism award. engineering students took top honors in the ecocar competition. others race to get their vehicle to the moon in the lunar x prize competition. meteorology students won the forecasting challenge, and notably this week, more than 3400 penn
have realistic expectations, but what i can promise is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we're not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy, and i instituted a 15-minute rule, you urn everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes, whether it's the mayor's, the governor's, county officials, if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> eliot: for more on the crisis left by hurricane sandy in and around new york and new jersey let's go to "abc news" correspondent brandy hit in lower manhattan. thanks for joining us. >> hi, eliot. >> eliot: what is the latest you can report in terms of transportation hospitals power, evacuation, what have you heard most recently from those in charge. >> there is a lot to update for you. first when it comes to power. the power is slowly starting to come back online in lower manhattan. that's a good sign. when it comes to transportation we know there is limited subway service tomorrow morning. in manhattan you can
the economy on an annual basis it does not work, so we need to talk about the past. one is more government control. >> senator, your response. >> first, i want to thank the networks and my family, my wife of 35 years, my daughter, and my other daughter, and 60% of the grand kids are here. it is good to have james here. jobs are critically important, and i think if you take a look at what is wrong with washington, d.c. compan, there a long list of people. the jobs bill as a prime example that you brought up. it is interesting the gentleman i am running with is hyper partisan. he mentioned rosa, and she has gotten off hold of me and said he has not been much of the health on the subcommittee, and quite frankly, what needs to be done is people need to work together as americans. is when doesion thi politics trump jobs? is it when clean air or clean water is at stake or perhaps politics? >> the answer is jobs, and we need to create an environment in washington, d.c., where we are working together. we are trying to create an environment of working together. it is a political year. of course she
it was excellent, because it is. he said if i was not getting something from the federal government that i should call him directly at the white house, and he was going to be here, and not worry about dealing with anybody else, deal with him. >> there's that 3:00 am phone call. >> yeah. we were talking about that yesterday too, if you get rid of that federal aid it's problematic in times of disaster, because people in the state are in the midst of a disaster. >> exactly. they don't have a lot of ways to communicate or drive around -- >> why don't they drive the buses -- >> this is the exact time that you need federal assistance. >> you have an outside perspective, so you can assess how much equipment or assistance you need in that environment. there is also news too that he was upset with the mayor of atlantic city. >> i heard about that. what exactly went on? >> from what i understand is he was upset because people got stranded there. chris christie said get out, take this seriously, and he is blaming the mayor of atlanta city for sending people to shelters which are very c
about government covering their health-care costs. i am on medicare now, certainly the government takes my. when i was working, you have no idea how many times, because i was the person who put the insurance payments into the computer when i came to the hospital, and you have no idea how the insurance companies to turn down a thing this. host: even though they make their comments known about the presidential race, we are focusing on cost and said races in your state. a couple of stories, at this one out of new york when it comes to hurricane sandy, federal money do not up to states and hurricane aftermath, the first trickle of federal funds start to go out. 29 million to rebuild highways. $30 million to hire temporary workers to help with the cleanup. it is certainly to the multibillion dollar bill for the government. the federal office has 7.5 billion to spend. an additional 5 billion could be made available withinan offsets required in other government programs. that is in the new york times. when it comes to how the money is concerned, this out of the new york post. the state labor d
seven children, were killed when government warplanes bombed residential areas in the province of idlib. ariel attacks were also reportedly launched on eastern suburbs of the capital damascus. the top united nations investigator on palestinian human rights is calling for a boycott of all companies linked to settlements in the occupied west bank. the special rapporteur on human rights in the palestinian territories confirms the oldest firms including hewlett packard, a volvo and caterpillar are complicit in the israeli occupation. >> this is an attempt to reach out beyond the intergovernment international institutional systems and one of the things that our report recommends is encouragement of the boycott of these named corporations, and encouragement of civil society actors to join in that boycott. >> the obama administration has rejected this proposal, calling it "irresponsible and unacceptable." planned parenthood has filed a new lawsuit challenging a funding ban in texas that seeks to exclude it from a program for low-income women. the texas program offers cancer and health screenin
and local governments has been outstanding. obviously we are now moving into the recovery phase and a lot of the most severely- affected areas. new jersey, new york have been pounded by this storm. connecticut has taken a big hit. because of some of the work done ahead of time, we have been able to get over 1000 officials in place. we have been able to get supplies, food, medicine, water and emergency generators to ensure hospitals and law enforcement offices are able to stay up and running as their of their responding. we will continue to push as hard as we can to make sure power is up throughout the region, and obviously this is mostly a local responsibility, and the private utilities are going to have to lean forward, but we're doing everything we can to provide additional resources so that we can expedite getting power up and running in many of the communities. there are places around newark, new jersey, where you have 80 percent of the people without power. my instruction has been do not figure out why we cannot do something. i want to figure out how we do something. i want you to cu
. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i voted to strengthen our 34il8 tear. military [applause] a couple of things happen when i beat senator nelson. the second thing that happens is harry reid will no longer control the agenda. [applause] so florida, we're counting on you, we're counting on you to get out there and vote for mitt romney. i'm counting on you to go out and vote for me. together we'll make sure that mitt romney is the next president, that i'm the next se
, federal, and local governments. and so we're confident that the assets are prepositioned for an effective response in the aftermath of the storm. r david paulison knows about mobilizing the federal government's response to a hurricane. he was in two weeks after hurricane katrina. are you confident that fema is prepared given the sheer size of this storm, almost a thousand miles in dimer. >> it is a huge storm and the impact will on the storm is so big, it is impacti sever states from dall the way up to maine at the same time. but i am rae very comfortable. we have a great administrator running the organization. he gets it, he's from florida, a good emergency manager. doesn't run around with his hair on fire. so i'm confident they will do a good job. >> on a conference call today n fact, your successor, mr. fugate said the disaster fund at fema has a billion dollars in t more or less. is that enough for this kind of response that will be necessary? >> probably at the end of the day the expenses will be more than that. but yes, it's enough for now. what the president has de, he psident has
is to get the government -- the overt regulation is crushing our economy. those are the facts. we have to have clean air, clean water. at the same time, when you have the federal government telling the american farmer that your 17-year-old daughter cannot drive a tractor, who will take better care of the farm kid? mom and dad or big government? the key thing is to have both parties coming together sharing ideas. not one party telling us what we cannot do. let's look at everything and do it in a responsible way for our economy, for our environment and also to make sure that people are safe on their jobs. >> we need to get away from our reliance on foreign energy. we are taking some good steps in that direction. we have some great examples right here in peoria. with the ag lab. they are researching something that has great potential. as higher oil content than soy beans. it can be planted in the off- season. and has great potential to be used as an alternative biofuel. within the 17th congressional district, we have examples of solar farms. we have examples of wind farms. and did a favor
of of the prosperity to virginia. when they talk about less government and tax cuts, this isit looks like enormous cuts toyou can't have it both ways. they don't want to have any revenues to balance the books and what substantial cuts to government spending, that is what looks like in the commonwealth of virginia. when you make the draconian cuts thousands of lost jobs. they estimate 200,000 jobs just we may agree on the issues but we certainly disagree on how to get there. is turnout. i say that because in 2008 we had 75% turnout in virginia. three out of four voted. it is terrific. we want that type of turnout, democrats, republicans, and independents to engage in democracy. here in loudoun, it was over 75% turnout. over 70 percent -- 77% to thousand eight and barack obama received 54% of the vote. what it means to us as we are doing everything we can to get out the vote. we have five days left. we're working on it for weeks, if not months. we have tremendous resources in as well. loudoun and the rest of the commonwealth. i think we have a superior ground game, a superior and help re-elect the presid
morning news. some important notes to pass along for you right now. the federal government will reopen today. employees still have the option for unscheduled leave or telework. most schools are reopened today but there are some delays. can you find all that information scrolling on the bottom of the screen. >> now, the power outages. utility companies are making head way. at this hour, dominion virginia has just under 21,000 people still in the dark. bge is now under 30,000 in anne arundel, howard, prince george's counties. pepco promised to have the power restored to 90% of its customers by this morning. >> they're moving along pretty where well there. >> great. >> other people still in the dark but we'll get there. >> yes. >> tucker, you have a lot of issues with power outages and trees. >> i mean certain neighborhoods, we just are more prone to it. my neighborhood, every time, as i said before. if my friends across the street, their children have a birthday party, blow the candles, the lights go out in the neighborhood. >> you have a lot of company. >> i do. things are going to get
report is coming out on friday, that has been confirmed. the big government jobs report. scott, the last one before the election. >> that could have a big impact. but there's another thing we haven't really thought about here, wednesday is end of month. you can't keep these things shut for that long. we have end of month and jobs report. we will have to start getting things back on-line very soon. sandra: what do traders want to see ultimately the exchange do as far as trading is concerned? >> we would like to be open. it is also a good advertisement for open outcry, we're standing out here with these funny color jackets on but we want to make sure the public knows we're here and open for business. sandra: that's it. energy is still trading on the globe-ex electronically. only 45 minute break between 5:15 and 6:00 p.m. eastern time, that's still plan as scheduled. trading will begin in energy and gold market tonight. that is if the cme doesn't change things between now and then. we will keep everybody updated on that. liz: thank you very much. neil cavuto will have those globe-ex trades
the federal government is ready. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. we're going to cut through red tape. we're not going to get bogged down with a lot of rules. we want to make sure we're anticipating and leaning forward. >> the romney campaign canceled his events in virginia yesterday. instead, he joined paul ryan on a bus tour of ohio. >> i know that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> of course, it couldn't come at a more important time politically. there's a new tracking poll out. it shows the president aahead of romney 49% to 48%. that's a three point swing in his direction from last week. before we get to politics, i want to bring in meteorologist bill karins to give us the latest on the storm. bill, where sandy is taking a slight left turn, right? >> she started the turn. this is the amazing part of the storm, history-making part of the storm. what's incredible is this is still a
government giving of land away was based on how many people were in your group. if you could bring slaves, then you would get more land, regular people brought slaves, especially in texas, lots of working-class people came with slaves in order to enhance, are an interesting test about texas itself. regular people and slavery. we have a little more time. if anyone would like to ask a question. okay. would you please move to the mike. >> when i looked at the first lady's great granddad in the new york times and his half-brother and almost looked like the same person, you took the same person and bit him in caramel. that was astounding to me. i don't know if the similarities were that profound throughout but that seemed to me -- anyone who saw the picture and that is why you selected those photographs, i would like to hear about that in terms of the true similarities and i would love to hear any comments you would care to share when families got together for the unveiling and two sides of the family together to describe in appropriate ways the interaction between them. >> the families do fin
of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we've got to do this together. >> well, here's what we can do. look, i'm on record, i think turning it into a voucher is a bad idea. i do think, though, that anybody realistically looks at it and says, if we're spending 17% of our gdp on health care and every other country's spending 11% and their outcomes are better, that difference is 6%, that's our deficit and our debt. and so let's find good ideas -- now, i stole a whole bunch of ideas from a massachusetts governor that i think over time is going to save us money. the $716 billion that governor romney suggests i stole from medicare actually is money that we are saving in the system and extending the life of medicare. so i think there are ways we can do this in a creative way. but if we
will be back in 30 seconds. >>> something we've seen before. a politician who gains coverage. senator mcgovern lost by a landslide to president nixon and years later mcgovern lost his bid for the presidency. just four years after dropping out of the 2008 presidential rate dennis kucinich lost his seat during the democratic primary after redistricting put him in a member versus member contest. the biggest one i remembered goes back to 1996 when bob doanan ran for president and was the surprise loser on election night in his old orange county district that everybody thought could not be lost. today we're looking at congresswoman michele bachmann. is it her turn? she is facing a tough re-election challenge less than a year after finishing last in the iowa republican caucus. joining me now luke russert. he just returned from minnesota's sixth district and because we were focused on this because we figured out nobody is spending more money on a re-election to a house race than michele bachmann. >> it really is amazing. for someone who was the tea party darling, the whole star of the movement, start
for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is to come and put the money in the communities. i went down there today and he did not say, thank you for coming. please take this money and bring it back to washington. he said, go back to washington and tell them they need a reality check. we are tired of the overspending and the taxing and taking more money out of the economy. there are real challenges here. i used to live here. i worked and i lived over there. i understand. many businesses are hurting right now. regulatory tax uncertainty is the biggest challenge they have. >> tomorrow will be the one- year anniversary of senator brown's first vote against 22,000 jobs here in massachusetts. i hope everybody who knows someone who is unemployed, every business who would like to see those paychecks to spend in their shops, will remember that. that is how we jump-start the economy. we get work that needs to be done, and we put people back to work. the bill would have cost millionaires
is for the government has a part to play, but individuals have a part to play, too. you've got to be working together so when people -- some of these people, obviously, their pain is genuine and totally understandable. but some of these people did, you know, were told to leave and didn't leave. and you understand why they didn't. it makes sense in human terms, but, you know, there is a responsibility that you have for yourself in addition to what the government obviously has for you. and again, if both sides are woaren't working together, that's when things fall apart. >> the person talking about they're pulling bodies out of water, the economy has to keep going, and there is potentially, meacham, some sort of symbolism as well. they're grappling with that in other towns and communities up and down the east coast are probably dealing with similar types of decisions as they try and move on. >> it's phenomenally complicated. >> really complicated. >> at what point do you show you're strong, restill yebzisil. >> no better way. >> the debate about what should be done after the attacks 11 years ago. it was t
most of our constitutional laws don't give the government-elected officials the authority to force people to leave, so what government does do is control the transportation, control the roads, control the buildings. so this is a way to encourage people to leave. >> and when they tell you, you know, to basically get out, that means to get out because they have done all they can. and someone like chris christie, we have the box on the screen because we are waiting on chris christie, the governor of new jersey, he said it last time with a hurricane barreling to new york and new jersey. i'm telling you, get out if you don't. i'm paraphrasing, you are not right, i don't want to say a bad word to people. you have this new book called "leadership" and making decisions in the wake of katrina and other decisions you have made. as you're watching this preparation and watching people like michael bloomberg, people down on the coast, are they making the right decisions? >> they are going in the right direction. in today's world, we have large numbers of people living in concentrated areas and
government and send it back to the states and if you can go further and send it back to the private sector. >> the president signed these major disaster declarations for the state of new jersey and new york. they seem to be grateful for the help of fema and the president. wouldn't president romney want to do away with fema and ship those resources back to the states? do we know for sure? >> yea. absolutely. he's not opposed to that by any means. i think what the governor is talking about and we've seen cases in the past is trying to make sure that fema is the most effective agency possible in terms of affecting states and localities with disasters and it's always been a major concern in the sense that the way that it is budgeted for is not one in which it is reliable or one that states can depend on, so looking at how we fund fema and how those activities are streamlined to help states and again, you look back several storms and there's a lot of criticism to fema, so getting to an agency, allowing an agency to operate more effectively and ensuring states and localities are receiving the fu
will it cost the government's disaster refund leaf fu -- relief fund, and is there enough to cover it? eamon javers is here with more. >> you can see a very swollen potomac river. you can see a lot of debris going down the river. we've seen entire trees floating by our position here. the potomac has stayed in its banks. over here, they have these massive 20-foot flood walls that were ready to roll in case the river breached its banks last night. so far, so good here. as for the federal government's response, we just had a conference call with fema. they have about $3.6 billion left in their disaster contingency fund. that's as of october 26th. they're also saying that president obama when he made that major disaster declaration for new jersey and for new york, he did that verbally. what that meant was they were able to cut through a lot of the red tape and move this process along and get the response going even before the disaster happened. they're also saying that fema is dispatching housing inspectors to go out and take a look at the claims. they want to avoid any kind of massive fraud pro
complaints that it's not low enough. >>> a d.c. official defends his use of a government phone to call an adult chat line. >> i'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? >> and proof that a long >>> still dark and cold tonight after sandy knocked out power. for one town in new jersey nearly everyone has been without electricity for four days now. jim rosenfield is in essex falls with a look at the help that's arrived from our area. jim? >> hey, jim, this gives you an idea of what some of these power company crews are up against. this is one tree that fell across a road. so it knocked out power to this neighborhood. we've been out here all day. we do have progress to report. the utility company that was here, the crews that are here, they're up in the buckets, they've moved on because they finished their work here and they're moving to other parts of this community. but still, no power here yet. 90% of the 2,200 people who live in this borough still do not have power, and they're waiting. >> it's 21 degrees outside. we're freezing. we have no heat. anything.
